I always look back fondly of my memories as a partner. One of my favorite memories was while visiting the NY stores. I walked into a store and gasped when I saw this mug. I always collected mugs at every location I visited but this mug was unique. I refused to ship it in case it broke or got lost. I carried it proudly on the plane with me all the way home to Seattle. I ended up putting a plant in the mug and it sat on my desk for years. Sadly I gave it away to another partner when I left Starbucks. Hopefully they loved it as much as I did.
